Need to setup remote backup server


I'm trying to figure out how I can do the following...

I have 2 servers. One is an operational CentOS + cPanel server and the other is a blank CentOS server. I want to use cPanel's backup suite to backup our customers accounts but I want to do it so the blank server is mounted to the cPanel server, rather than an FTP backup. If that makes sense. I believe from previous experience that NFS is the way to go but I'm not sure.

Any help appreciated!

Hi MikeP1990,

I am not sure how cPanel backup suite work. I would appreciate if you can give me an idea on how does it work.

If you want to backup over the network then NFS is the best way. You can mount the NFS shares of blank server to CentOS + cPanel server manually or using automounter. As far as I am aware NFS is the best when it comes to network.

Sounds like NFS is what you want if you want the backup server's disks mounted (visible) on the primary server.
Centos = free ver of RHEL, so use this doc to get a handle on NFS http://www.linuxtopia.org/online_boo...ion/index.html.
Note that this just makes the disks available, you still need to copy (backup) the data; no idea how Cpanel works, so I'll leave it there ...

Why not use ssh instead of ftp?
